All e juices contain vegetable glycerin (VG) and/or propylene glycol (PG) as a “base” ingredient, the liquid that carries the flavor and combines with water to make the rich, smooth vapor you enjoy.
While both VG and PG are perfectly capable of keeping your vape full and flavorful, there are differences between them that might shape your decision when buying e juice. VG is a little thicker and sweeter than PG, and produces a bigger vapor cloud. In contrast, PG provides a stronger throat hit, but with less vapor per puff. So, with VG-based vaping liquids, expect a light throat hit with sweet undertones and thick clouds of vapor.
How and Why We Use VG in E Juice
Our original HAUS Classic E Juices and the liquid in our Mistic E Cig cartridges are made of 100% PG, while our HAUS Craft Collection e juices use a blend of 60% VG and 40% PG. Our UNBROKEN Premium Liquids balance a 50% VG and 50% PG blend.
As you can see, different juices use different proportions of each kind—but what exactly is VG, which is only used in our Craft Collection and UNBROKEN lines? VG is a common compound made from processing fruits or vegetables like palm, coconut, or soybeans. Though you may never have noticed it before, it can be found in the ingredient list of many foods and cosmetics.
Like we mentioned above, VG does add a little bit of sweetness to whatever you’re vaping. With our Craft Collection juices, we use this to our advantage! Flavors like Moon Milk and Cloud Punch (and our two new flavors: Zomberry and Jam Session) have a little bit of sweetness to them. Plus, because VG produces impressively large clouds of vapor, these flavors will deliver consistently thick plumes right before your eyes.
As you can see, VG brings a lot to our e liquids. To explore some of our VG-containing e juices, check out our complete line of vape juices.
